Meet Joanie and Matt

Starting JAM is a HUGE step for both of us- an entirely new project (for adults)- and we are really excited to share it with you.

Joanie and Matt's debut album artfully showcases story songs which interpret ancient texts with a modern, feminist twist.

Weaving in and out of the Folk and Americana genres, long-time friends and multi-award winning songwriters Joanie Leeds and Matthew Check have teamed up after a decade of creating the Jew-Grass genre, now introducing modern-musical midrash.

Matt has never been to CHICAGO nor has he ever had deep dish. We had to get our delish NY Pizza on before heading to Chicago to do the ultimate test. 🍕 JAM Priorities. Stay tuned for the results.
